Meet Katie Hausman, our new Senior Director of Summer Programs!


Dear Friends,

We are delighted to introduce Katie Hausman, the newest member of our JCC family. Katie joins us with immense enthusiasm, she brings a wealth of experience and a vibrant spirit.

Katie is thrilled to be starting at the Kaiserman JCC as the Senior Director of Summer Programs. After graduating from the University of Central Florida with a major in event and hospitality management, she moved to Birmingham to serve as the community youth coordinator and assistant camp director at the Levite Jewish Community Center (LJCC). Over the next eight years her many hats included serving as camp director and, most recently, as community engagement director. She also served as the assistant games director for the 2017 JCC Maccabi Games hosted by Birmingham. This summer she co-led the LJCC’s team of teens who participated in the JCC Maccabi Games in Israel.

Having grown up in Lehigh Valley, Katie is excited to head back to Pennsylvania after 16 years away from home. Although her time in the south taught her to be an avid college football fan, she is looking forward to once again cheering on the Eagles. Go Birds!

Katie’s brings a strong commitment to fostering community engagement and enriching summer programs. We look forward to Katie contributing to the growth of Camp Kef and enhancing the overall summer experience for all our campers.

Please join us in welcoming Katie Hausman to our community, where her energy, knowledge, experience, and dedication will undoubtedly make a lasting impact

Stay tuned for opportunities to get to know Katie at upcoming meet & greets, open houses, and more!

Shabbat Shalom and wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving weekend!
